I am currently looking for property in Western Oregon (between Eugene and Portland) to create a small permaculture demonstration farm and micro-community. Before I obtain a suitable property, I want to feel out the demand for tinyhome (w/wheels) parking space. During my initial start up phase, I will recruit individuals who are looking for a nice spot to park their off-grid tinyhome. I am especially interested in people with building or handyman skills. I hope to obtain property within the year.

We would have to come to an agreement beforehand to ensure a good fit.
Rent ($200-400?) and work trade possibility
Timing and length of stay
I am willing to share amenities such as kitchen and shower on occasion
No substance abuse
Please no pets or children

Property will have:
2-20 acre
Functional dwelling w/ shared space
RV hookup possible but not guaranteed
Small plot for personal garden
Within an hour of Eugene, Corvallis, or Portland
Eventually <10 tinyhome spaces

Demonstration farm will be developed according to the following values:
Biodiversity
Aesthetics
Respect towards nature and people
Multiple income streams
Welcoming visitors: renters, woofers, volunteers, b&b, students, customers
Education, outreach and community


Anyone interested? I’d love to discuss the possibilities!

I like your plan here. I'm looking to do something very similar in Maine.  Communal garden surrounded by very small tiny house campground with an intentional community feel.  non profit.... community center building.....meals and beds could be earned through volunteer work.   I'm looking now for land and researching codes etc.  I'd love to hear more of your plans
